    mfg_72.jpg

    It's time to welcome back DarkSword Miniatures to Wamp as they return for their second year, and we have something pretty special lined up for you this time.

    This years contest will focus on the George R.R. Martin Masterworks Range that most of you will know from the excellent Song of Ice and Fire books and the Game of Thrones TV Series.

    For the contest there are some cracking prizes on offer from DarkSword:

    • 1st Place - $200 in Dark Sword On-line Store Credit
    • 2nd Place - $100 in Dark Sword On-line Store Credit
    • 3rd Place - $50 in Dark Sword On-line Store Credit
    • 4th Place - $25 in Dark Sword On-line Store Credit
    • Honourable Mention - $25 in Dark Sword On-line Store Credit


    All entries must be from the George R.R. Martin Masterworks range and as a special treat we have lined up the perfect person to judge the entries........

    George R.R. Martin
    himself!

    That's right the very man that created the Westeros world and the books and TV series based on it will be judging your work. George is a fan of miniatures and has an extensive collection painted by some of the foremost artists around. George is always on the look out for new painters so this is a great opportunity to impress the man himself!


    Deadline for entries will be 4pm 24th May 2012

    Supporters deadline is 4pm 31st May 2012

    A few rules:

          Other than "Daenerys with Newborn Dragons", I'm not sure there are any other dragons in the George RR Martin series as of yet.

              I'm incredibly excited about this contest :)
              Game of Thrones is a wonderful book series, and I also really like the TV series! It's really great that George RR Martin himself will do the judging, that will certainly raise the bar I presume.
              Personally, I have planned a little diorama for this contest and I hope it will turn out the way it looks in my mind!

                  I'm probably going to have an entry or two for this one as well. Hell, looking at the sponsors for this year, it's possible that I have something entered in all of the contests. That's assuming I can keep myself motivated.

                    I think I'm gonna skip this one. Don't have any mini of that specific Darksword range (expect for already painted Cersei) and don't really feel like getting one.

                        I'm like nameless on this one. I'd like to get involved, but none of the range particularly tickle my fancy. As people have said, definite kudos for the judge though! Shows the power of the Wamp!

                            Nope other than the aforementioned naked bint with three baby dragons, which is the model I've just ordered to paint up for this challenge, but I assume the prize would be good for the whole range of dark sword models (she hopes!!).
